June Challenge...Chipboards, Chipboards, Chipboards

Hi, this is Marivic and I am here to host this month's mini challenge. Our sponsor this month, Wycinanka, had generously provided the winner a package of chipboards.

For this month's challenge, we will use chipboards on our projects...

Paint, mist, glitter, distress, decoupage, stamp, emboss....doesn't matter how you do it, just as long as you use chipboard on your project. It could be a LO, altered art, OTP, home decor, card, tags, or any way you can creatively use chipboards.

So for my project, I used one of the beautiful frame chipboard from Wycinanka, you can visit their website to order yours. There are a lot to choose from.

I painted the chipboard using Creative Imaginations Twinkling H20 in bamboo.

I also made my own flowers using Fabscraps paper roses and for the center one I used my Tim Holtz tattered flower die.

Here is the final project:

I used a paper mache box. Decoupaged with printed tissue and used mod podge shimmer to seal. And fabric to cover the top.

So I hope you can join us and share us your project using your favorite line of chipboard. I must admit that I just started using chipboards on my projects, I was intimidated at first, but now I am getting the hang of it and I sure love it!

Here is what you can win..
